In the computer chess world, Stockfish has dominated for a long time, but
this learning program LCZero pulled up even with it.  Last year they had a
match where they were right together for the 100 game slug-athon.  Stockfish
edged it out 50.5 to 49.5.  Stockfish isn't getting better, but LCZero is,
since it is a learning program.  Now they are on another playoff, same two
programs made it to the top.  Now it is LCZero 40 Stockfish 35.


It's getting harder to claim that this software is not doing something very
closely simulating learning and narrow intelligence.
